Az Sen Flake Proposes Amendment to Energy Act to Delist MGW

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have received information from Veritas Research Consulting, that Arizona Sen. Flake has introduced Amendment #3164, as part of the Senate Energy Act (S.2012) to remove from the Endangered Species Act List Mexican gray wolves (MGW) from federal protection and placing management within the appropriate states where MGWs live.

The amendment – found at this link – calls for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to verify that at least 100 MGWs exist within a 5,000 square mile region, and to remove federal protection as per the Wolf Recovery Plan of 1982, which declares MGWs recovered at that threshold.

Missing from this amendment is any wording that would exempt court interference, now and in the future.

It appears the amendment is basically worthless, in my not-so-humble opinion.
